Concept and Characteristics of Auto Guided Vehicles

1. The concept of auto guided vehicles

Auto guided vehicle is abbreviated as AGV, which is an important handling equipment of the logistics system. An automatic guided transport vehicle is a kind of transport vehicle with electromagnetic or photoelectric guidance devices that can walk along a predetermined guidance route, and it boasts vehicle operation and parking devices, safety protection devices, and various transfer functions.


AGV is an unmanned auto vehicle powered by electricity and equipped with a non-contact guiding device. Its main function is that it can make the vehicle walk and stop to the designated place more accurately under the monitoring of the computer, according to the path planning and operation requirements, and complete a series of operation functions.

2. Auto guided vehicles are widely used due to their excellent performance

People vividly call the auto warehouse equipped with roadway stackers the hub of the modern logistics system, and the AGV as its artery. The auto guided vehicles are characterized by wheeled movement. Compared with walking, crawling or other non-wheeled mobile robots, they have the advantages of fast action, high work efficiency, simple structure, strong control, and good safety.


Compared with the stackers, monorail vehicles, transmission chains, conveyor rollers and fixed robots commonly used for materials, the AGV activity area does not need to lay rails, supports and other fixed devices, and is not limited by sites, roads and spaces. Therefore, in the auto logistics system, it can fully reflect its automation and flexibility, and realize efficient, economical and flexible unmanned production.


With the development of factory automation, computer integrated system technology, flexible manufacturing system and logistics industry, auto guided vehicles have been widely used. Inquiry automated guided vehicle price.

3. The characteristics of auto guided vehicles

(1) High degree of automation

It is controlled by computer, electronic control equipment, laser reflector, etc. When auxiliary materials are needed in a certain part of the workshop, the staff enters relevant information into the computer terminal, and the computer terminal sends the information to the central control room. Professional technicians issue instructions to the computer. With the cooperation of electronic control equipment, this instruction is finally accepted and executed by the AGV: sending the auxiliary materials to the corresponding place.


(2) Charging automation

When the power of the auto guided vehicle is about to run out, it will send a instruction to the system to request charging (general technicians will set a value in advance), and automatically go to the charging place to "queue" for charging after the system allows it. In addition, the battery life of the AGV vehicle is very long.


(3) Beauty

Improve the ornamental value, thereby enhancing the image of the enterprise.


(4) Convenience and reduced floor space

The auto guided vehicle in the production workshop can shuttle back and forth in each workshop.
